- If employees are not intrinsically motivated chances are very high that they are not creative as well. and won’t work hard enough as passionate people do.
- Being passionate is coming from the inside-out. You can break somebody’s motivation very easily but it is very hard for leaders to inspire people to give happily the best of what they have to offer if they don’t want to and don’t have trust in the management.
